Miles for Smiles a success


Check presentationThe afternoon of June 9 was memorable for Leeanna Bartlett, assistant professor and director of social services at Texas A&M Health Science Center Baylor College of Dentistry.  She was visited by five students representing the Pre-dental Association at The University of Texas at Dallas.

Bartlett had worked with the students to produce the second annual Miles for Smiles runathon event on April 24.  The event raises funds to benefit the Social Services Dental Care Fund at HSC-BCD.

The students proudly presented a check for the proceeds from the 2010 event.  A total of $2,055 was donated to the fund.

Bartlett was extremely pleased by the size of the contribution to the fund.  "This will help several patients at BCD with their dental care," she says.

The students' visit to campus concluded with a tour of the dental school.
